On Economic Fantasy
There's an excellent post up on SF Diplomat about economic fantasy. This is the kind of stuff I'd want to read, and it's why, of all the fantasy books I've ever read, Raymond E. Feist's Rise of a Merchant Prince is one of my absolute favourites. It's also, of course, why EVE Online is my favourite MMO, and a core theme of my ideal fantasy MMO. I tend to call it "sandbox fantasy", though.
